Hiring the right fit

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr “…it’s important to find and hire passionate people, who genuinely care about the business and its purpose. Purpose is no longer a buzzword. It’s a must-have.” –Richard BransonIn my latest video, I feature an employee that wants to “do so much more.” This is exactly who we want to hire. We want employees that strive for bigger and better things. Richard Branson expands on this same topic in his blog. He stresses the importance of hiring a person whose personality matches the company’s mission versus someone who may simply have a certain skillset.Basically, Branson is saying that you can teach someone with the right personality to perform certain skills, but you cannot teach someone how to have a personality that fits in your organization’s culture.So what does this have to do with my project, Learn to Earn? continue reading »last_img read more

Clippers’ Doc Rivers jokes reporting LeBron James on the NBA ‘snitch hotline’

first_img Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Inside the NBA’s beefy, 100-page safety plan for policing the bubble in Orlando, Florida, is an option for anonymously reporting social-distancing violations, or as Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie termed it in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks: “The snitch hotline.”Montrezl Harrell said he’s definitely gonna pass on that option.“C’mon now,” he said on a Zoom video conference with reporters Wednesday. “Do I look like a player that has used that hotline?”Harrell might have no interest in tattling, but the Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Wednesday that the tip line has received multiple calls of players breaking the league’s safety protocol – or, apparently, for being annoying. Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime During the league’s initial quarantine period last week, someone tipped off security about some “thumping” in a hotel, according to a report by Chris Hayes during an NBA on TNT segment, when he said a security guard went to investigate “and who opened the door? It was Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler, drenched in sweat with practice gear on from head to toe. He was dribbling a basketball throughout his room the whole time.”Clippers Coach Doc Rivers joked Wednesday that there might be reasons other than safety to put in a call.“I turned in LeBron (James) yesterday,” said Rivers of the Lakers’ superstar. “I’m turning in Pop (Spurs coach Gregg Popovich) today. I’m trying to turn all these guys in. I think it’s phenomenal. We’re going to be the only team left when I’m done with this hotline thing.”More seriously, Rivers said he appreciated the NBA’s effort to do everything it can to minimize mask and social distancing violations inside the bubble before the official resumption of the league on July 30, when the Lakers and Clippers are scheduled to play each other. After all, on Wednesday, the Florida Department of Health reported 10,181 new positive coronavirus cases, as well as 453 new hospitalizations, with a positivity rate of 13.59% for new reported cases compared to those tested.“I don’t think it’s a problem at all,” Rivers said of the line. “I think it’s good. This is not some normal thing. COVID obviously, it’s not only that you can get sick but you can get other people sick, and so this is very important for all of us. We want to do our jobs. So I think having a hotline, I guess that’s why they’re calling it, I guess that’s important.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 center_img As much as he’ll miss his family in Alabama, Green said he had no reservations about joining the Clippers in Orlando, where they’ll chase the organization’s first championship.“Just happy to be back with my teammates,” he said. “Pretty much a no-brainer for me to come out here and fight with my team.”Ivica Zubac, Landry Shamet and Marcus Morris Sr. are the only other Clippers who have not been documented as being in Orlando. Rivers was coy when asked when they’re expected to arrive: “I don’t even know to be honest. I don’t check. To be honest, JaMychal walked in and surprised the hell out of me. So, because they’re in quarantine and stuff, you don’t ever know.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory JaMychal Green joinsThe Clippers welcomed back JaMychal Green on Wednesday, when the 6-foot-8 power forward practiced with the team for the first time since the NBA suspended the season March 11. Green arrived in Orlando a couple days after his teammates because of the death of his 100-year-old grandmother, Ruth Green, on July 3.“I’m going to miss my kids, my girlfriend, and just my family, period,” Green said via Zoom. “My son, he just turned 1, so it was great spending time with him the way I did, so I’m definitely going to miss him … My grandma died, so I had to go home just to be around my family.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
